The Tokyo Toy Museum was opened in 2008 and makes use of the school building from the former Fourth Yotsuya Elementary School, which was constructed before World War II. The theme of this museum is “encountering toys that open the heart.” Over 10,000 toys are available that can be enjoyed by all ages from children to seniors, and visitors can actually touch soothing Japanese wooden toys and European toys with refined designs. A toy workshop that makes toys from recycled materials is open every day, and volunteer “toy curator” staff members teach visitors how to play with the toys.
